Let’s Roam St. Thomas – Jetpacking in St. Thomas
We’ve all had that dream before. You start running, pick up speed, take a giant leap and suddenly you’re airborne. You’re flying. And then, your alarm goes off and it’s actually just another Monday morning. But finally — I’m getting the chance to feel what it might actually be like to fly at St. Thomas Jetriders, where 420 pounds of water-propelled thrust turns you into an aerial acrobat.What have I gotten myself into?
First things first, my flight team: Mark, Landon and Evan. This dream team of certified jetpack experts get you off the ground, no matter if you’re 18 or 80. So how does Jetpacking in St. Thomas work?
1. Strap on a bad-ass marine engine.
2. Press your start button.
3. Then a 33-foot hose shoots you into the air with the force of 1,000 gallons-per-minute.
And the best time to fly? Sunset. Just watch the pros!
